Condors With Orange Tags

On This Page Navigation

Condors with orange wing tags are "1000" birds. This means that an orange tag with a 6 on it would be condor 1006.

Hatched: Estimated 4/15/2019 from a wild nest outside of Pinnacles
Sex: Female
Parents: Condor 330 and Ventana Wildlife Society condor 375 (deceased 2020)
Fun Fact: Biologists were completely surprised to see 1006 flying with her parents in the fall of 2019; they didn't think that 330 and 375 were nesting that year. This is the pair's third offspring that they have raised in secret outside of the park!

1027 (No Current Photo)

Hatched: 4/19/2020 in a wild nest in Pinnacles
